Discovery Channel Unites Red and Blue America (and Green) America for Savvy Shopping Holiday Experiences

Giving a unique experience gift this holiday season is patriotic and memory-making

LOS ANGELES (RushPRnews)19/11/08-The American people have spoken. Just as many citizens cast their vote for change this election, savvy shoppers across the country can now be a part of that change. Why not make holiday gift giving a patriotic experience? Excitations, the nation’s premier provider of unique life experience gifts, has hundreds of novel ideas on how shoppers can give impressive gifts, boost the economy and still go easy on their wallets this holiday season.
Stop stuffing your loved ones, friends and business associates with “more stuff.” iDiscovery Experiences are designed to evoke the sense of adventure, learning, personal improvement, exploration, and fun found in Discovery Channel programming. Starting at $50 and up, there is an affordable and exciting array of experiences to match each viewer’s passion and interest – from a wolf watch experience to skydiving, and from digging for dinosaur fossils to a walking photo safari. An innovative idea is to give life experiences, which promote an appreciation for our environment while leaving a minimal footprint. John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, observed that getting people to experience the environment was the best way to get them to care about the environment.

Discovery Experiences has embraced this philosophy by offering hundreds of experiences that appeal to environmentally conscious consumers who want to give meaningful and memorable holiday gifts this year. Some of the popular experiences from “Eco-Friendly” gift category include: kayaking and snorkeling guided tour, science under sail, wolf watch experience, rock climbing, walking photo safari, a dog musher adventure, and a llama lunch trek for kids.

Giving a gift – one way of connecting to people — is also an opportunity to connect to our planet. What better way to make your green values known and to share them with others than by presenting earth-friendly gifts to friends and family?
